Braided Heart Christmas Decoration
The braided heart decoration from Ugly Duckli is made in 100% durable high-quality metal.
Our red and gold braided heart ornament shows off the pleated heart heritage pattern. A pattern that is so well known and loved in Denmark and the rest of Scandinavia.
Pleated heart or Braided heart?
You’ll see this design referred to as both a “braided heart” and a “pleated heart”. Both are correct and can be used interchangeably.
In fact, you could also call it a “Woven heart”. It’s all about the pattern that comes from braiding, pleating, weaving, or folding paper of different colors to create a heart shape.
Whatever you want to call it, the Ugly Duckli Christmas heart ornament comes in two sizes:
- A large Heart ornament perfect for the big Christmas tree
- The smaller Braided Heart can hang wherever you wish
It’s tradition to put small treats or Christmas cookies in these Danish Christmas ornaments.
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen
Most Danish Christmas traditions have many decades (or even a few centuries) of history behind them.
This classic Danish Christmas decoration is no exception.
The tradition of making pleated heart ornaments (usually made from beautiful glossy paper) for Christmas was inspired by the world-famous fairy tale author Hans Christian Andersen.
The pleated heart (or woven heart) is a truly authentic Danish ornament that can be filled with both goodies and little sweet messages.
